The Yamim Nora’im (Days of Awe) offer nothing short of the opportunity to change our lives. These ten days of reflection, renewal and repentance provide a context and container in which we can take stock of the direction of our lives, see where our habits are serving us or not serving us, and take steps to bridge the gap between our intentions and our actions.

At SAJ, we know we cannot do the holy work of transformation alone. We need a community which inspires us to go deep inside and to stretch ourselves to give beyond what we think are capable of. As the shofar blasts on Rosh HaShanah and at the end of Yom Kippur, we listen for our own individual calling, to be our best selves, to show up with our whole selves, and to recommit to tikkun olam, repair of the world. Our shared SAJ holiday customs bind our community together over these sacred days. We offer a variety of ways to connect over the holidays — we hope you will find your way into one of them!

After the challenging past years, the themes of the High Holidays are especially resonant and important. Together, we will reflect on what has passed and dream new futures for ourselves and for our world, and commit to act with love, kindness, and compassion. Olam Hesed Yibaneh– together we will build a world of love.
